Can A Walking Contradiction Run?

It had become known in recent weeks that former Gov. Tommy Thompson, considering a Republican run for the US Senate seat held by Democrat Russ Feingold, had supported health care reform similar to what Democrats and Pres. Barack Obama have created.

And there was little secret of Thompson's multiple lobbying and private sector jobs he'd lined up after leaving Pres. George Bush's cabinet in 2004.

All of which hardly makes for a run for Senate as some sort of outsider opposed to the Democrats biggest policy offensive.

But now Dan Bice discloses that Thompson's businesses have benefited generously from the Democrats' major financial initiative - - the stimulus bill.

I'm not sure what Tommy has left in his quiver.

Maybe his attitude towards Milwaukee?

See, or rather, hear that here.

James - surprised you haven't figured out yet what most of the rest of us have - that being Tommy Thompson is not going to run, and never really had any serious intent to do so.

How long are you going to beat this dead horse?

Well, the first post I had about Tommy predicted he would not run, but perhaps I am a fool for listening to his accolytes.

Is it true that Belling called Tommy, Wall and Leinenkugel Tweedle-Dee, Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dem?

If accurate, that is a helluva funny line.

James - you are usually on top of all things local talk radio, but apparently not when it comes to Dick Leinenkugel.

Sykes, Belling, and Weber have all been unmercifully trashing Leinenkugel on a daily basis as a complete joke of a GOP candidate for the Senate seat Feingold currently holds.

And yes that is an extremely funny line - at least we agree on that.
